A new take on a traditional apple crumble. Apples poached in a masala tea bring just a hint of spice to the apples. I'd suggest a rich and creamy milk chocolate for the drizzling - you don't want anything too bitter.
Crumble: Pre-heat oven to 180c.
Mix together in a bowl the rolled oats, plain flour, brown sugar, vanilla extract and butter.
Rub the ingredients together with your fingers to form a crumble.
Spread the mixture onto a lined baking dish.
Bake for 30 minutes - until starting to brown.
Poached Apples: Peel and core the apples then slice each into eighths.
Add 500ml of boiling water into a saucepan (so that the apples are just covered)
Put the Cocoa Orange Masala tea into bags or a diffuser) and let the water boil for two minutes so that the tea steeps.
Then add the apple slices to the pan and cook for 5 minutes (until the apples are soft, but not mushy)
Once cooked remove the apple slices with a slotted spoon and leave to cool.
To serve: Place crumble mixture onto the centre of each plate, put the apple slices on top of the crumble.
Melt the chocolate and drizzle it over the apple.
